Donald blurted out in dismay, “Of course I know the sedative doesn’t work, I can see it with my own eyes! I’m asking you, what should we do now?”
The doctor paused for a while and suggested, “I’ll increase the dosage a little bit more. We have to get him to calm down first no matter what.”
Donald nodded and urged him, “What are you waiting for?! Go ahead!”
“Mr. Webb, excessive use of sedatives can cause damage to the body, so…”
“He is already damaging his own body! The most important thing right now is to calm him down as soon as possible!”
“Okay!” The doctor nodded. He quickly prepared a larger dosage and injected it into Kian’s body, but it didn’t seem to work either.
“That’s so weird…” The doctor stuttered, “The effect of this sedative is very strong! It is used on savage elephants, but he is still so irritable. This is so strange…”
Suddenly, the cardiologist said, “Oh no, his body is shaking! I think his heart rate must be very high!”
He retrieved a portable ECG monitor, connected the probes to Kian’s body, and made a quick test. He was shocked to find that Kian’s heart rate was as high as 180 beats per minute!
“This… this is the heart rate index after vigorous anaerobic exercise… If he keeps on like this, I’m afraid his heart can’t take it much longer!”
Donald asked frantically, “What will happen then?”
The cardiologist explained, “He will have heart failure, palpitations, or myocardial infarction, which means a heart attack, and it can be life-threatening!”
“Then, what should we do?!”
“The best way is to calm him down as soon as possible! Otherwise, his heart won’t be able to take it for much longer…”
The psychiatrist said, “But don’t you see? He can’t calm down, not even after two extreme doses of sedative…”
Kian was still struggling desperately, his heartbeat getting faster and faster!
The cardiologist shrieked in panic, “Oh, no! If he keeps on like this, it will be fatal!”
Donald turned to Kian’s friends who were in shock and asked, “What the hell happened to him? Is there any way to calm him down?”
The three guys exchanged nervous glances. One of them started, “Hello, uncle. After Kian went back to the dorm, he began to eat shit. No one can stop him when he wants to eat shit, and he’ll regain consciousness only after he finishes eating… The same happened for the second and third time…”
Donald’s face became gloomy and cold. “So, you’re saying that he can only calm down after eating that thing, am I right?”
“Yes.” The guys nodded.
Sean asked, “Dad, do you think there’s someone who wants revenge on Kian? In the past two years in college, he did hurt some girls from poor families, and I heard that two of them had died.”
Donald said with an emotionless expression, “You said it yourself, those are girls from poor families. Whether they are alive or dead, they are not able to do anything against us. I smell a rat in this matter.”
The cardiologist shouted, “Mr. Webb, your son’s heart rate has now exceeded 220! If it goes on like this, he’s not going to make it!”
Donald ground his teeth in dismay and finally blurted, “Let him eat it!”
Sean gasped in shock. “But, Dad! You can’t let him go to the toilet to eat that thing! That… that’s so disgusting!”
“What else can we do?! There’s no other way! Keeping him alive is the most important thing right now! Let him eat it first! We’ll think of a way after he is stabilized.”
